once this magnificent animal swam freely in the seas but now held captive for human greed. a miserable "life" behind bars and concrete walls no companion killer whales to hear its calls. yes. i'm sickened by what i've seen and the mass faroe islands pilot whale slaughter is obscene. my eyes don't easily fill with the tears but when i watched those whales scream and die the tears ran freely from my eyes to see them murded, hacked apart was like something tearing indide my heart yet one day such creatures might all swim free peaceful coexistence - no fear, no need to hide ourselves and whales together side by side

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.
